What builds the most effective creative industry network in Northern Ireland?
The Creative Exchange Northern Ireland (CXNI) is a knowledge exchange project that seek to answer this question from the perspective of the creative people themselves. With dynamic input from sector leaders, CXNI wants to know what the relationship is between people and place? What support has enabled your success? How does knowledge exchange with universities, with research and with other like-minded creative businesses sustain your valuable work as a creative person? This event will bring together a wide range of creative people from different disciplines to share their experience and to identify trends, challenges and opportunities. Networking solo and micro creative businesses is essential and will be part of the packed agenda for the day. CXNI hopes for fruitful exchange between participants and to facilitate immediate opportunities for collaboration.
Further information regarding CXNI project research and support will be announced. At the end of the planned agenda for the day, we hope you will join us for a break for cocktail hour before Belfast’s ‘Late Night Art’.

When & Where
CXNI Creative Exchange Northern Ireland (UU and QUB)
CXNI's primary objective is to build and strengthen creative networks, hubs and clusters in Northern Ireland, informed by research-led facilitation and interactions.
CXNI is driven by a belief in the values that creative knowledge exchange can bring to communities, from academic and research initiatives to social, political, cultural and artistic ventures. Guided by the culturally rich landscape of the creative industries in Northern Ireland, CXNI recognises the strength of the solo and micro creatives and artists who stimulate the sector, and seeks to support and build their network base, sustainability, agility and interactions with stakeholders regionally, nationally, and globally.
